I live! Again!





Hello everyone! Welcome back to a quite Up-Date! if you haven't noticed by now my blog has just evolved!

Oh no! I knew it, Marrok is an evolutionist! I bet he thinks he will be the next X-men.

No no no, you've got it all wrong, I'm just trying to say I finally got a new look for my blog. I was planning for this up-date to come out on the first day of Spring but since I had some time now I though "What the heck, Let's Rock!" and then Bam this happened.

But the blog look isn't the only thing that has changed.
Profile Picture Up-Date: I drew and colored a new profile pic. My first digitally colored picture! So as you can tell I went with a different look. Instead of going for a Disney style look (Left) I went with a more Marrok Original look (Right).





















This new profile is basically what I look like (if I was animated and my hair was super light). So first I took a quick pic of myself, then sketched out the an animated version of myself
After that I scanned it I transferred it over to gimp where I did the basic coloring/highlighting
After that I did some more highlighting and BAM what you end up with is the finished product. I am planning on sharing more art and stuff but I've been kind of busy with classes and stuff. I will be doing a post about art I just got two awesome Blog Tours coming up first so stay tuned. I have been drawing, and right now I'm working on two pieces for a Fan Art Contest. I'll be needing all your help choosing two of the three pieces to enter.

WIP Up-Date: So right now I'm at 16,011 of the 80,000 I am planning on doing. It's coming along well just slow and I can't wait to share more about it with all of you!

Angry Badger Up-Date: Yes the Angry Badger movie review has also gotten an Up-Date, I gotta' say I am liking the new look. it looks more like a professional movie review. The look of the Angry Badger may change again as I mess with the temples and stuff.

Other Up-Date WIP:  As you can see I have taken down the "button" tap. I don't think I'll be putting it back up right away. The side bar thing is also currently under construction as I make different social buttons and other things.

That seems about it. What do you think of the new look? Is there anything you notice needs some work or is not working right?

And until next time, Stay True to the King!

  3. So, in the picture you took of yourself, were you smiling like that? Cuz I really need to know who your dentist is then. !!! :D Haha.
    Good job on the sketch though, for real. And congrats on your word count for your WIP - that's great!

  4. Oh thanks for the that - I'll have to check them out if my new dentist next week doesn't pan out. ;)

    I know what you mean, but yes, a little is better than none! And as a friend told me, the tortoise won the race. :D
